Alex, lovely shots! BTW, how do you do the distortion correction in post? Thanks

Problem is, I don't think the 24-70 (without IS) was designed with you in mind. I would guess that the main use case Canon considered was reportage - PJs and wedding shooters being the two biggest camps. - Both of those groups need to keep their shutter speeds up to reduce motion blur - in the region of 1/80s to 1/125s at least. - For that reason, IS on a 24-70 is not important for that use case, while it is important for a 70-200mm lens used in the same circumstances.
You are just part of an unlucky minority.
Canon possibly didn't consider the video crowd with bringing the 24-70 f/2.8 II to market. On the other hand, if Canon had included IS, all the PJs and wedding shooters would have complained about the unnecessary cost of unneeded IS with the lens.
It looks like Canon can't win - they are bound to make somebody unhappy, no matter what they do!
Good on you Canon - close the plants down permanently if necessary.
